On the Street….ADR on Fifth Ave., New York

It’s continually inspiring to see the respect Anna has for her fans, and that she is so sincerely honored by their appreciation. Anna lacks the blasĂ© gene, which is refreshing for a fashion icon.

    She looks so stunning and stylish here! It’s wonderful to hear about a fashion icon who is genuine, friendly, and totally lacks pretense. A rare combination, I feel!

    This photo of Anna on the steps is my favourite pic on the Sartorialist blog so far this year ! I love the polish and consideration she brings to dressing up and the fact that she is a patron to many designers showcasing looks that deserve to be noticed on everyday streets and not just in magazines or on catwalks.

    That hat it is one of a kind, she looks gorgeous as usual and this is supposed to be one characteristics of a fashion icon.

    the very reason we love her so much..apart from the fact that she has this approach to fashion where she said recently fashion is about seducing yourself..

    She is heart, joy, light, fearlessness, charmingly funny, enthusiastic, brilliant, disciplined, generous…the definition of loving kindness!! I remember her early days on blog scene…when editors became stars….and she just ran with the ball…ah, gown…and keeps running and laughing and loving with those fabulous legs!

    Our Scott (yea Scott!), started it all for her new ” fashion star career”, as the world’s happiest self proclaimed “fashion victim’ right here on “The Sartorialist”!

    Her huge heart and non-jaded joie de vivre, might have something to do with her daily rigourous ashtanga yoga practice….and hour long swim! Or maybe she was just “Born This Way” (she was). In between FW’s, and EAL of Vogue Japan (largest distribution Vogue), she spends much of her time (when not dancing her heart out and DJing).. at the ashram in India!

    And in a few weeks (Oct 4th, I think)…her over the top, only Anna , accessories collection will probably be bought up in seconds at H&M. It is a brilliant collection of her favorite color…. gold, bejeweled gold and more….ta da.. gold… after all, “more is more”, especially when it comes to gold! Thrilling collection!

    Treat yourself. Go to and watch her over- the- top video, “Fashion Shower” for her accessories line at H&M.

    As you can tell, she is my fashion idol!

    Thanks Scott for pointing out her consistent kindness and enthusiasm, and the wonderful b&w photos of her in b&w VB! Brilliant!

      I can understand oh, about every third word she says. It’s charming and not important anyway. I’m enjoying the full throttle fun she’s having. May need a fashion shower afterwards.

    I’m happy to read she is actually a kind person, although I already had that feeling from reading several interviews with her

    Love the dress and shoes, and ofcourse its the hat that makes it ” anna”

    I’m sure Anna is incredibly sweet and a genuinely good person, as everyone attests, but, oh dear.

    I saw these pictures & the fact that they were taken in black and white just lends even further to her look. Classic & well done.

    I love how you’ve put that…she DOES lack that gene and I hope she never finds it :)

    She looks great here – but sometimes not. For instance…she was photographed wearing a black “bandage” dress recently that looked like a bathing suit. I know she is very thin…too thin…but she isn’t young, and no one past the age of 21 should be wearing a dress as short as that black dress.

    Not on the street, anyway!

    ADR really is special; a deeply impressive CV and displaying an uplifting sense of style, fun and charm. Really though, above all this, I love how her face lights up when she smiles.
